Word of the week- Subtle
Subtle. Achieved in a quiet or unobserved way that attracts little to no attention to itself so is therefore clever or good. As I’m sure all of you noticed, I’m an extremely subtle and unobserved person who shies away for any and all attention, which is why I have a website dedicated to my writing.
No, I’m just joking but seriously.
I don’t do subtle.
I see absolutely no point of it.
Obviously I don’t march up to someone, insult them then walk away. I’m not that bad.
But let’s say someone asked me a question most people would shy away from. I stand up proud and answer, fully, properly and proudly because
Who has time for shying around the point? I’m sorry, but you’ll regret the things you don’t say more than the things you do, you’ll wish you had told your friend it wouldn’t suit her short before she had it cut, or that you told that girl you liked her before she dated someone else or that-
My goodness, subtlety is so damn boring.
If you dislike confrontation, I get it. It’s scary. To be open and honest and all, it’s terrifying but if someone asks you a question and you avoid and deflect-
You’re not being subtle, you’re being evasive and
I just don’t see the point.
Life’s too short. To spend time on subtlety. Be tasteful, sure. Be kind always.
But take a risk. If you’re reading this then, well, firstly thank you, but also get off of this and message someone you haven’t for a while and say hi, talk to your crush, tell someone you love them and be straight up and honest. If a friend has upset you then tell them, if there’s an unresolved issue then resolve it but get off of here and do it now-
You regret 100% of the chances you didn’t take so
Love, Hea xx
